It is of grave concern to both the grassroots Jewish and Iranian communities in Canada that only one segment of an infamous state-sponsored terrorist army is recognized as a terrorist group.
Last summer, a private member’s motion by MP Garnett Genuis received bipartisan support in the House of Commons, calling on the government of Canada to correct this omission by listing the entirety of the IRGC as a terrorist group. A similar motion was introduced in the Senate in December 2018 by Sen. Linda Frum.
A year has elapsed since the motion passed. The group has yet to be so designated, despite the clearly expressed will of Parliament.
A branch of Iran’s military, tasked with upholding the brutal Islamist dictatorship and supporting its terror proxies such as Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the IRGC is a quintessential example of an influential group with clear, radical and violent intentions. It also has a long history of acting on these intentions.
As leaders representing Canada’s Jewish and Iranian communities, we are passionate about supporting democracy and peace in Iran, so that its policies coincide with Canadian values and Charter rights.
This initiative is a uniting force for both Jews and Iranians, as not only does the IRGC frequently target Jews while continually threatening to eradicate Israel, it also harshly punishes and harasses Iranians who oppose the Islamist regime, and are passionate about having the right to common constitutional practices and ensuring equality is returned to Iran.
